We have been to this restaurant now for several years and it never fails to please. It's a 10 minute drive from Megeve but well worth it. You are warmly greeted, unlike some French restaurants, and lunch on La Terrace looking onto snow capped mountains is one of life's pleasures. There is an a la carte menu and also a... More

Having read most of the other reviews here I would agree. Le Refuge is about a 10 mins taxi drive out of Megeve. Luckily our hotel dropped us off as another guest was eating at the restaurant next door to Le Refuge - little did we realise what a bonus this was! Our return taxi trip cost us 35 euros... More

We stayed in the centre of Megeve, and when our friends booked this resto I was a bit surprised because it was snowing heavily and our hotel restaurant was incredibly good! More on that in another review. The taxi ride was the most ridiculously expensive we have ever ever had in our life! Euro 70 one way? PLEEEEZZE! But we... More

The food: the food was great and not pretentious. They aim for the traditional French dishes, which are re-visited and made at the Gout du jour. Portions size are also good. I would not come up with recommendation but my friends St-Jacques & lobster dish tasted amazing. I had some beef, which was also amazing. Service: Service was kind and... More

This elegantly rustic mountain restaurant is a short drive above Megève toward Rochebrune...Have been there off season as well as in high season and have always found the service prompt, pleasant and professional. Very good food, attractively presented...with prices not over the top. A warm and inviting spot to spend a relaxing evening...

The interior is typical French alps but the food is anything but typical. The quality, presentation and menu creativity makes it first class. This is one of my favorite restaurants in the alps. It is a few miles out of town on a mountain road but well worth the drive!

I have been dining at this restaurant several times over the years, I have to say that it unfailingly impresses with both the quality of the food and service. I just love it.

Definitely a place to discover. The restaurant is very cosy with a nice outside terrace. The service is very good and they are very friendly. I was not amazed however by the food which was standard only in my opinion. I had a good moment there and will go back once for sure as we did enjoy there.

We always go to Le Refuge when in Megeve and are never disappointed. Our most recent visit was as good as ever, outstanding food, service ambiance and good value. Helpful valet parking greets you and the menu is varied with some interesting daily specials. Deserts are worth leaving room for, especially the souffle.
